How to design a "Schedule of Stay"?

Hi there, I have trouble trying to understand what "schedule of stay" for the 6 month long stay visa is. Say if I just wanna rent a cheapo little apartment in Tokyo and just live in Tokyo for 6 months to 1 year and try to find a job or get into college, what should I put on my "schedule of stay"?

I can only guess which part you are stuck on, but if I put myself in your shoes (after filling in the obvious bits), the fuzziest part I see is if they actually need pages after pages of my daily activities for 6 flippin months. My guess is no, but if you are stuck at that point, I suggest consulting the US embassy in Japan. I think it's best you write the most part and narrow down the unclear area as much as possible. It's even better if the question could be answered with a yes or a no.

Below is the contact for the US embassy in Japan regarding your visa.
If you are already in Japan and want to visit them, seems you need to book an appointment first.
